There is something very flattering for a woman’s body wearing high waisted. The silhouette looks “right” in a way and makes the legs look longer, and who doesn’t want that? I have been wanting shorts just like this for ages, striped and high waisted denim shorts. And have been keeping my eyes open in vintage shops – but no luck yet. Her shoes are made of crochet, super nice but I wouldn’t wear them to much in the sun as that will make a very fun pattern.

    I understand this may be a little late but Topshop have some high waisted striped shorts almost identical to this. Maybe a little more hotpant-like

    this is the perfect boho outfit! I’ve been looking for some similar shorts too- i’d quite like a pink candy stripe though…!

    Oh wow just a divine look. The hat and top are really quite sweet and adorable as well. But as you said…the shorts really do make the piece. I’m now tempted to drag out my high waisted 18th Amendments from like 2 years ago. But I have to wait for summer.

    Love it all the same

    Hmm. It depends. When you have long legs and a short waist, this look doesn’t work. It shortens your upper body even more and makes your boobs look like they are on your waist. Then, adding length to already long legs makes you look a bit like an arachnid (if it only had two legs). Do you not agree?

    I almost bought a pair of identical shorts at a thrift store last week, but they were a little big. Very cute!

    Ahhhh this is the perfect summer outfit. Look at the little flower buds on her necklace! Do you by any chance have a closeup of her shoes? They look great!

    Good luck on the hunt for shorts – hers are wonderful!

    Love everything high waisted… and not that I dress for men but I always wonder if they think it looks good too!! What do you think?

    I noticed her shoes right away, pretty cool that they’re crocheted though I do agree with you on the funky tan lines. 🙂

    I do like the laid back vibe of her outfit, the red brimmed straw hat really adds to that. 🙂
